Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but nothing *quite* comes close to the intrigue and beauty that transpires in façade-less expression that utilises mania instead of suppressing it. Case in point, Irene Wilde’s visceral Avant-Pop release, Righteous Virtuous Woman. The stylish art pop single allows you to imagine what Warpaint would sound like if the lyrics and vocals delved into the depths of their madness instead of scratching at the surface of emotion.
Fans of Emilie Autumn, Amanda Palmer, Tori Amos and Bjork won’t want to wait around hitting play on this colourfully tumultuous firestorm of untamed passion that unravels to cascading piano keys, jarring progressions and erratically fierce vocals.
Righteous Virtuous Woman is now available to stream on YouTube.
